Remembering Mr. Playboy

This week we lost an American icon, a legend of cool, an ambassador of sexiness: our founder and guiding spirit, Hugh Hefner. He was 91. There aren’t enough words to properly explain how Hef single-handedly pushed American culture in uncomfortable ways, but he did make the whole world a lot damn sexier. One of the best measures of a man is: Did he leave the world better than he found it? Hef exceeded this measure by miles. He will be missed, and we all owe him a debt of gratitude for his bravery, his support of marginalized communities and how he not only published voices of, but fought for, culturally progressive ideals. Thanks, Hef.

We gathered some of the best writing by and about the original Playboy here. It includes gems like Hef’s original Playboy Philosophy, 1974 Playboy Interview with Hef wherein he talks about how the Bunny changed the world and Chief Creative Officer Cooper Hefner’s remarks on his father’s legacy.

So long, Hef. Thanks for making the world sexier than you found it.

Heroes of Consent

In Defense of Sluts

Even though it’s 2017 and we’ve become a much more open-minded society—one that respects the various lifestyles people enjoy and the choices they make—we still have a problem with slut-shaming. Obviously, this is part of a larger cultural pattern of policing women and what they do with their bodies. Slut-shaming is when a woman’s sexuality is weaponized against her. To fight back, brave, bold and brassy women like Amber Rose have been organizing SlutWalks in recent years—women-led marches against the culture of shame.

This week, Amber Rose hosted 2017’s in Los Angeles. Her man 21 Savage was there in support. The macho rapper even got shit for it on social media, which just goes to show why we need to support SlutWalks.

This week, Playboy interviewed Amber Rose about her own history with slut-shaming and how Hef’s legacy inspires her modern brand of feminism and fight against sexism.

She told Playboy that people have been asking her opinion of Hugh Hefner and said,““I believe he gave women a platform to feel sexy and feel beautiful and make a lot of money. I don’t think it was demeaning in any way. I think the magazine is legendary and beautiful. It’s a woman’s choice to do what she wants with her body.”

If you were wondering what one wears to a SlutWalk, here’s Amber Rose in her unapologetically sexy, cleavage-baring “Captain Save a Hoe” costume. No doubt about it, she’s the hero we need.

And so it begins #arsw17 #captiansaveahoe ✊🏻✊🏾✊🏼✊🏽✊🏿

Sex Jones

Can a Woman Become Addicted to Her Vibrator?

Occasionally you’ll see a headline that raises a question you wouldn’t have ever expected to see like, this one, which claims “All Women Deserve Access to Sex Toys––Even In Poverty.” That’s what you call a fresh perspective. It’s a good and true point to bring up. Low-income women deserve orgasms, too. That may sound like a set-up to a joke, but seriously, climaxes aren’t a punchline. It’s good to see the world wake-up to the importance of regular sexual release as a vital part of your general health. An orgasm a day truly does keep the doctor away.

Of course, there can be too much of a good thing. With calls for all women to have access to orgasms, there also a fear that women will become addicted to their vibrators. But is this a real thing? Can women become addicted to what the fake dick does? Vice’s health vertical Tonic checked the legitimacy of vibrator addiction in this interview with family and marriage therapist Nicolette Heidegger.

We’re happy to report Heidegger says, “I know that we all may have different cultural or personal views about using sex toys, but the fact of the matter is that there is no empirical data to support the claim that you can become physiologically or biologically addicted to a sex toy.”

So, no, you can’t become addicted to a vibrator. Guys, that’s good news. You don’t need to worry about your partner picking a plasticine penis over your joy stick. If you’d like more evidence vibrator addiction isn’t real (or need to prove it to your partner), here’s Playboy’s Bobby Box to break down the data that matters. Instead of fearing the vibrating lover, maybe surprise her by bringing a new sensation to bed, treat a vibrator like your partner in her pleasure rather than competition. Trust us, she’ll thank you.

Kink Report

A Colombian Sex-and-Drugs Cruise; Alien Sex Fetishists

As your go-to guide for all things sex, we strive to keep you fully aware of all the latest trends in getting kinky. This week, we have a spicy combo platter of sexiness.

Sex tourism is often seen as something that takes place in dark spaces for dark deeds; that, or in the movies, it’s a ransacked Bangkok hotel room. But how about a real-life sex cruise to a pleasure island? Would you be interested in hopping on a yacht with a squad of sex workers available 24/7 for sex-and-drug romps?

Down in Colombia, Good Girls Company (lol) is offering exactly that. This week, the company had to remove their YouTube advertisement because although prostitution is legal in Colombia, pimping is not. The advertised sex cruise is open to 30 men who wish to hop on a yacht with 60 prostitutes and enjoy a drug-friendly kink sail. The travel packages range from $600 to the luxury package at $1,500. You too could have a sex worker pour chocolate sauce into your mouth as you eat dessert off the body of a naked woman, if that’s your thing.

But what about when your tastes are a lil more otherworldly? Like, what if you want to hook-up with an extra-terrestrial? They’re called exophiliacs. And as diverse as they are, the one thing all alien sex fetishists agree on is that aliens indisputably have sex organs. And, if they have sex organs, you know what that means. Some humans want to hump them.

Here’s a fascinating read about alien sex fetishists. Not only does it feature a “Chinese man who had levitating sex for 40 minutes with an alien woman,” but “Simon Parkes, a city councilor in the United Kingdom, [who] claims to have had an ongoing sexual relationship with an alien woman he called the Cat Queen, who gave birth to a daughter he named Zarka.”

This Week In WTF?!

“Not Now, Officer! Can’t You See We’re Having Sex?”

Each week, we like to take a digital trip around the world to check in with all the ways people like to get wild and kinky. Sometimes it ends in humiliation, other times in police custody. But each story will leave you wondering “WTF?! Who does that?!” This week’s group of sex rebels definitely tried to have it their way. Let’s play a lil game: Try to guess how it ends for them.

Wisconsin Couple Tells Cop To Come Back When They’re Done Having Sex

You know how they say not all heroes wear capes? Well, some heroes don’t even wear clothes. This hero is from La Crosse, Wisconsin and his name is Bailey Puttkemery, age 21. He and his partner Emily Scott, 20, we’re enjoying each other’s bodies in the back of his Pontiac Grand Am, sometime around 3:30 in the morning. Their passion grew so loud they woke an old woman up. She called the cops. When the officer arrived, he found the car’s windows fogged-up. Since the Grand Am was a-rocking, the cop came a-knocking.

The officer confirmed the couple was indeed having sex, instructed them to stop, get dressed and step out of the car. After he waited five minutes, the officer discovered the couple “had reinitiated the sexual intercourse.” So, the cop knocked and again instructed them to get out. That’s when Puttkemerey told the officer through the car window, “No, bro, I’m trying to fuck!” Once he was done and finally stepped out of the car, still fully naked, Puttkemerey got salty with the cop for “cock blocking him.” The officer objected to his nakedness, ordering him to get dressed. Puttkemerey told him “It’s just a dick. Nothing to be afraid of.”

HOW IT ENDED: Both arrested.

Reality TV Star Had Sex With Friend’s 15-Year Old Son

We all know it goes down in the DMs. But what about when it’s your mom’s friend hitting you up? In this instance, a 37-year-old former reality TV show contestant was the perp. Lucy Haughey hit up her friend’s 15-year-old son looking to shag, Which they did. She later confessed to a friend, presumably also on Facebook, “He wanted introducing, I’m an expert, it happened.” Then, realizing what she’d admitted, Haughey asked her friend to delete their conversation. Instead, the friend told the boy’s mother.

HOW IT ENDED: Lucy is now on a sex offender list

Cannibal Couple Uses Dating Apps To Hunt For Victims

Just when you think online dating can’t get any worse, you read a story like this one. Meet Dmitry Baksheev, 35, and Natalia Baksheev, 42. Over in Russia, these two creeps were a pair of very active serial killing cannibals. What they did is so thoroughly foul they could make a buzzard lose his appetite. Over two decades, they drugged, butchered and devoured 30 people. Recently, they’d taken to dating apps to find their victims. (And you thought your matches sucked.) The pair were caught after a stranger found Dmitry’s lost phone in the street and noticed selfies of Baksheev with dead bodies. He alerted police.

HOW IT ENDED: Both arrested, pending charges.

Girlfriend Tests Her Boyfriend By Having Hot Twins Seduce Him At His Job…Doesn’t Play Out How She Wants

This one’s wild. A woman wanted to catch her boyfriend cheating. So she secretly set him up with two hot twins to seduce him. The pair are definitely attractive. The temptation was great. But the boyfriend stayed loyal, which pissed his girlfriend off. You see, she’d set him up because she wanted him to cheat. That way she could absolve herself of her guilt from having an affair with her co-worker. But her man was true, while she was not.

HOW IT ENDED: Disloyal girlfriend gets upset at her cheating ways
